Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and S consoles have simply been launched, but it surely seems that there’s some unhappy information for earlier Xbox house owners who used the streaming function to play console video games on their PC by way of their native community (utilizing Wi-Fi or a wired connection).
For these not within the know, this native streaming function works by way of the Xbox Companion app on Windows 10 PCs, but it surely doesn’t help Microsoft’s freshly launched consoles, as Microsoft MVP Rafael Rivera identified in a tweet.

Clearly this might be disappointing for some PC house owners who’ve loved this function with their Xbox One, though there are some hopeful denizens on Twitter who’re preserving their fingers crossed that maybe Microsoft will add this function for the Xbox Sequence X and Series S in time.
Nevertheless, the above highlighted entry in Microsoft’s Xbox help doc does sound moderately ultimate when it comes to sport streaming to PCs solely being accessible for the Xbox One era machines.
As to why Microsoft made this transfer, that’s not clear at this level, however there was definitely no warning on condition that sport streaming to PCs was being eliminated at launch for the Xbox Sequence consoles.
One concept is that the rationale for the dismissal of this function might be one thing to do with Microsoft’s xCloud streaming service, which lets you stream Xbox video games to your PC, and different units apart from, like your cellular (though not regionally, in fact; it is a cloud service).
